Block 45 Rendering

A 36 story tower, called Block 45, located at 152 NW 8th Street in Overtown has been proposed, according to Miami Today.

Block 45 would have 616 residential units with 98 of them being micro-units. It would have 25,000 square feet of retail space with 637 parking spaces.

The project is being developed by Atlantic Pacific Communities LLC and designed by Bermello Adjamil.

Block 45 would be located next to 3 MiamiCentral which was just sold in May for $159 million.

Harlem Square Coming To Overtown

Harlem Square Site in Overtown

Coming soon to the Overtown district of Miami is Harlem Square, which will be a Supper Club/Lounge. The site used to be the home of legendary promoter Clyde Killen that was built in 1925 and also used as a liquor store. 

Harlem Square will be a rebirth of the old Harlem Square Club that used to be in Overtown and where what is considered one of the best live albums, "Live, At The Harlem Square Club, 1963" was recorded. $1.2 million of CRA funds will be allocated for the project.

Located next to Harlem Square is the Streamline Moderne X-Ray Clinic of Dr. Samuel H. Johnson that was built in 1939. The X-Ray clinic was used by blacks in the area because of segregation and was used until 1972. The building was donated to the Black Archives History in 1981. 

With Harlem Square and the addition of a new Marcus Samuelsson restaurant, Overtown is poised for growth in the area.
